Aims and Objectives  

The general objective and expected impact of this project proposal is that States parties participate actively and effectively in the Implementation Review Mechanism of the United Nations Convention against Corruption. The main expected outcomes of the project can be summarized in two: (a) the States parties receive support to conduct country reviews under the second review cycle of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, and (b) least developed countries receive assistance to participate in the Implementation Review Mechanism of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.

The main activities:

Facilitate six country reviews:  

  • Support the individual between the State party under review and the two reviewing States parties, including through the conduct of country visits and joint meetings;
  • Support a desk review that entails an analysis of the responses to the self-assessment checklist, focusing on measures taken to implement the Convention;
  • Prepare a draft blueprint of the country review report in advance of direct dialogue in the different languages of the review;
  • Assist the reviewing States in preparing their country review report with an executive summary. 

 

Assist States through advisory services in completing the self-assessment checklist, including domestic coordination and development of prioritized actionable recommendations for benchmarking and follow-up;

Support Least Developed Countries' participation in the Implementation Review Group country reviews by facilitating an active dialogue;
